I picked up some kind of persistent adware garbage that I can't seem to get rid of. I've run scans with Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition, and RegistryBooster2. I have Zone Alarm up and running, but I'm still getting popups and they're slowing down my system. Periodically, Symantec AV catches something and the notification pane pops up. Additionally, Windows explorer locks up after the computer's been on for a while with the following message:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Buffer overrun detected

Program: C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE

A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated.

Even when I've had adware problems before, I've never seen this happen before. Any help that anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

Here is my HJT log:

Thanks for the response. The problem is fixed. It was ultimately easier and faster to extract my files to an external hard drive and reinstall my system. I know exactly where I picked up the malware (my own fault) and will avoid that mistake in the future. Thanks again anyway, and you can consider this topic closed.
